Trying so hard to learn!


Reading on the potty
Originally uploaded by chiggster
To say his is a poorly little boy, Jack is trying really hard to be a Big Boy this week. He has taken to sitting on his potty with a book, and has a good go and pulling his trousers off first (with varying degrees of success depending what he's dressed in). He'll sit there for 10 mins or more if you read to him, and remember to bring lots of book with you so he doesn't run off at the end of every story to get a new one. But he's not actually managed to "go" yet.

Still, it's early days and I think he's doing well!

He's also making more of an effort to feed himself using his fork and spoon which is GREAT and means we don't have to let our food go cold while we feed him. He still needs a little help with it - he gets very wound up if the food he is trying to stab with the fork wont play nice and just be stabbed! So we still have to stab the food for him, but he's getting better and would rather feed himself than be fed.

His chicken pox are starting to crust over now so hopefully in a few days time they'll be gone. He has started to rub them a bit though and has a huge scratch on his face today. I've been out and bought some more calamine lotion today (he's gone through one bottle already) and he's got really good at having it applied. He sits on his potty while I cover him in the stuff!! He's got a little too fond of his calpol though, and his piriton... I think he'll be most miffed when he doesn't get any more medicine!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
